"We have proved we are as good as any country and hopefully there will be opportunities for the lads next season".
While many members of the victorious England U20 squad found game time hard to come by at club level this season, that wasn't the case with Calvert-Lewin, who made eleven Premier League appearances for Everton, scoring once. A recent UEFA report found that 62 percent of players in England's top tier were foreign, the highest in Europe. "Maybe not on the night in the final but it was just about finding a way to win that game and the players have done it and I'm absolutely delighted for every single one of the players, every single one of the staff".
The Golden Ball, awarded to the most outstanding player during the tournament, went to Solanke.
Paul Simpson's Young Lions were the first England side to reach a world showpiece for over half a century and they followed in the footsteps of Sir Alf Ramsey's team, who lifted the Jules Rimet Trophy in 1966.
Frost, 51 from Telford, told the Express & Star: "I shed a tear when the head coach called me in front of everyone and handed me - some kit-man from Shropshire - a World Cup medal". "We said if we want to win a World Cup we have to be absolutely committed from that moment on and they have been".
It is the biggest global tournament in youth football and already, England has started dreaming of winning the bigger World Cup trophy with these set of players soon.
Ronaldo Lucena's swerving free kick from more than 30 meters out swerved and beat a surprised Woodman, but bounced off the post.
But Calvert-Lewin broke the deadlock 10 minutes before the break. His powerful first-time shot was parried out by keeper Wuilker Farinez but the Everton forward pounced to drive in the loose ball.
England came close to extending its lead. Josh Onomah's shot from well outside the area hit the crossbar before bouncing onto the goal line and away to safety.
But England then had a real scare at the other end.
The penalty award stood, but Woodman's strong palm kept out Penaranda's spot-kick, despite diving the wrong way.
